Celebrate sculpture at Family Fun Day
Waterworks Visual Arts Center, in collaboration with City of Salisbury Public Art Committee, is sponsoring the eighth annual Family Fun Day at the F&M Trolley Barn on Saturday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Admission is free to this day of hands-on art activities and artist’s demonstrations.
This year’s theme is Celebrate Sculpture. Guided by professional artists and art educators, children will be encouraged to use color, texture, and movement to create their own fun sculptures to take home.
Local artist Ray Moose will lead the children in a collaborative sculpture project which, upon completion, will be placed on display in the windows of the Empire Hotel in downtown Salisbury.
